i just want what's best for my kids. when i hear arguments that massachusetts needs more charter schools, i think: what about the students in all of our schools? every new charter takes away more money from the existing public schools. that's 400 million dollars, just last year. we can't afford to drain even more money from our kids' schools because they're already losing so much. i'm fighting for yours, too.

the rain. and this boat, churning out waves to help mimic the perfect conditions they might face in the weeks ahead, still in hurricane season. >> one of the kind up-and-coming dangers that we face is urban flooding, so a lot of training today to learn kind of some of the obstacles and the challenges of dealing with flooding in an urban setting. >> the reporter: for days, the firefighters have been going over how to save someone if caught in swift water. to see it firsthand, cambridge them. jumping in and being the ones who needed help. help. they've also been working more advanced scenarios, like this one, where they had me sit in this boat taking on water. chelsea firefighter mike lee is above, around hoisted down to pull me out. >> anything can happen at any given minute, so just kind of keeping you know, a steady mind
time. >> the reporter: all of this, a very real scenario, that rescuers prepare for now for when they answer someone's real call for help. >> they're getting trained personnel, that when they come, they know that their firemen, e.m.s., police know what they're doing. >> they had a burn -- bunch of firefighters out here last week and this week preparing for the real thing. blair miller, fox 25 news. >> vanessa: beachfront coming under fire after they bolted their own set of stairs to the new seawall. that's according to the patriot ledger. the seawall already includes seven sets of concrete steps for people to use. town leaders say the wooden stairs are illegal and the residents needed to apply for a permit and no one did. >> mark: david ortiz pulls off a big prank. big papi took a break from his day job to go under cover with lyft. he threw on a pair of shades, a wig, and hit the road, picking up unsuspecting passengers from

entirety on our web site, fox25boston.com, also put it up on the facebook page. and it is a really funny ride. >> vanessa: it's funny to watch the whole thing. i'm surprised they didn't recognize his voice. >> sarah: i want to see the one where the person knew right away, you're david ortiz. >> vanessa: exactly. >> mark: nobody picked up on the fact that he was the first one to take a selfie with president. >> sarah: there you go. i know. >> mark: other clues. start looking around for the next time it happens. >> vanessa: the small, the voice, that gives it >> sarah: absolutely. >> vanessa: miserable out there tonight. >> sarah: he know. they're playing in new york hand they have showers they'll be watching nearby. as for us, we've got some clouds but i want to show you the tropics, because take a look at this. this is tropical storm matthew, which formed today and it is expected to strengthen to hurricane status as we head into friday, and by the weekend, gaining strength to a category two hurricane as it makes a very close approach to jamaica, and then cuba as we head into early
it does have the capability of strengthening and a lot of our computer models actually showing this progression of moving to the west before taking a sharp turn to the north. notice, this is by wednesday, and we're really going to have to watch carefully. a lot of moisture associated with the tropical system and we're going to have to watch how it could impact our area as we head into next week. and until then, we do have chances of rain. in fact, tomorrow, the risk is going to be lower, i'm looking at some patchy drizzle, mainly but by friday and saturday, we bring back the steadier rain that is expected to arrive especially friday and saturday and could linger through the weekend, into early next week. a lot going on in the atmosphere. we have the upper level low through the ohio valley. these are very hard to forecast. they tend to wobble a little bit and impact us greatly, so what we're expecting is this low to shift a little bit to the south and then a little bit to the north hand that's what's going to allow with the southward progression, this area of high
before moving back to the north and letting this front get a little bit closer around bring us our steadier rain late friday into saturday. are you with me on that one? it's a little tricky, but this is how it looks to play out. lots of clouds out there right now. the wind persistent out of the northeast as high pressure to our north and the front to our south. temperatures were cool and raw today. dropped through the day. now we're in 50's and right now on the radar, we've got drizzle across the southeast. visibility really showing where the patchy drizzle is right now, with limited visibility. anticipating to continue to see spotty drizzle this evening. so if you do have plans, grab that umbrella, you may not need them further north and west you go, but nonetheless, that wind off of the water, still really gusty out there. sustained northeast, 18 miles per hour, so it feels pretty cool and raw in the city of boston right now hand it will continue to do so overnight. the clouds acting sort of like a
fall too much, but where we do see breaks in the cloud cover, we'll see the mercury climb back or fall back down into the 40's. otherwise, we're taking up to the 50's with lots of clouds around and as we go on through the day, i'm thinking our best chances of seeing spotty drizzle will be along the immediate coast and down across the southeast, because i mentioned the high pressure, it's going to dip on south, so i think the further north and west you go, being optimistic here, we could see breaks in the cloud cover. brighter skies the further north you travel and with that, temperatures will climb into the low to middle it's going to be a tricky one, depending on how much sun we see. two stories the farther south and he's you go, more clouds as well as spotty drizzle you can expect through the day. the wind staying breezy otis epps of the northeast, about 10 to 20 miles per hour, gusting higher than that. futurecast going with us. high pressure dipping south. you can see the rain really pushing on through the mid-atlantic and as we head into friday, that high lifts back to the north, the clouds increase, and the risk of showers begins to move in, especially during the second half of the day, into
when we could see steadier rain. i'm thinking up until midday friday, about a tenth of an inch or less across our area. and then as we head into the weekend, as you take a look at the seven-day forecast with your weekend always in view, we could see areas pick up one to two inches of rain through monday. there after, we finally see breaks as the system begins to move on out of here. again, we have to watch the tropics carefully. >> tom leyden live outside yankee stadium in the bronx. it is a big night. the red sox hoping to clinch the american

>> he's had a tough one, you know, to start off, but it just shows the type of person he is, how he's battled back and pitched great for us a lot lately. sometimes it may have not look like it, but on the scoreboard, it only gives up one or two runs. that's goods for us to get a win, so i'm expecting that today too. >> price fires. >> the reporter: let's talk about last night. mookie betts catching in right field. he told me the ball was in the lights the whole way, which is why it looked so odd wh he snagged the ball, doubled up the runner at first and that is why mookie betts is an m.v.p. candidate, a gold glove candidate. one of the best players you'll see throughout the season. julian edelman is the quarterback candidate for sunday? probably not. jimmy garoppolo and brissett were both at practice. rex ryan had fun during the media conference call between julian edelman and the buffalo writers. have a listen to this.
